What Is the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The Santa Fe is a five-seat mid-size SUV that competes with the Ford Edge, Honda Passport and Toyota Venza. It’s powered by a standard 191-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Hyundai Santa Fe offers 25.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its backseat, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements. You can see how it scored in our Car Seat Check here.

A new XRT trim level is designed to look more rugged, with black exterior accents, dark 18-inch wheels and a dark grille, among other cues. Santa Fes produced from September 2021 onward get standard blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, safe exit assist, and side mirrors with integrated turn signals.

Should I Buy the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The Santa Fe has a roomy interior that’s nicely appointed, and the optional turbocharged 2.5-liter engine is a strong performer. This SUV also has a long list of standard active safety features, and the availability of hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions broaden the range of fuel-efficient drivetrains. We did, however, notice some low-speed jerkiness with the dual-clutch transmission.

Very good with few issues.

We have had the 2022 Santa Fe Calligraphy for one year and have been very satisfied for the most part. We learned early on that a front seat passenger can not use a seat pad and have the passenger seat air bag light go off. We met with a regional customer service advisor at the dealership and were told all new cars are that way. It’s unfortunate if you happen to be under 5’ and want to sit higher. Now that I know that, I am sorry not to have checked this before we purchased. Now that I do know I will consider this at my next purchase. Only three other issues, terrible gas mileage 22-24 mpg, occasional failure of the doors to unlock without pressing the key fob and street noise. As far as comfort is concerned, we have been happy with the ride and handling.



Bought this vehicle from Daytona hyunda on Nova Rd. Ian was are sales person I will never go anywhere else. We bought a 2020 Santa fe and traded it in for a 2022 Hyunda santa fe limited 2.5 turbo best in the world. 30 miles PG.
